If Microsoft really invests money into courting developers and helping get apps out, I suspect they will dominate.

Apple is Apple, no longer innovating, just regurgitating; and their hardware is limited.

Android is nice, in that there is varying hardware for different styles and such; but they suffer from a huge problem; their minimum requirements and requirements for certain aspects of the kernel is very lax; and it is starting to cause huge problems for developers.

Windows Phone 7 has the advantage that many companies are making the phone, marketing different features (bigger screen, better speakers, thinner and longer battery, better camera, etc, etc) at varying different prices on ALL networks. And their baseline requirements and configs are more specified while still allowing for variability in hardware (and pricing); which means developers should not have the same trouble as they are facing now with Android.

It is annoying that Windows Phone 7 dumbed down from the previous version, but it has the largest potential right now if they advertise it correct and hard and support the developers of apps and games.
